There are two standout issues for me in this wide ranging article, "The Evolution of Lawyers and What the Future Holds" by Aaron George.

The first is that BigLaw is losing out to niche firms. That certainly chimes with my experience with Halebury, an alternative law firm and NewLaw pioneer.

The second is the impact of new technology. Whilst it's surely right that technology could reduce the need to use lawyers, it throws up complex legal and regulatory issues for lawyers to grapple with.

We live in interesting times!
